      Chris Evans stepping down from Top Gear

      Chris Evans stepping down from Top Gear - BBC News
      BBC TV and radio presenter Chris Evans has announced he is stepping down from Top Gear after one series.

      He tweeted: "Stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough."

      "The team are beyond brilliant, I wish them all the best," he added.

      His resignation comes after falling ratings for the show - which hit a series low on Sunday night.

      He said he would continue with his other BBC commitments, including presenting the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show.

      "Full steam ahead then with Radio 2, CarFest, Children In Need, 500 Words and whatever else we can dream up in the future," he said.



      In a statement released via the BBC, he added: "I have never worked with a more committed and driven team than the team I have worked with over the last 12 months.

      "I feel like my standing aside is the single best thing I can now do to help the cause. I remain a huge fan of the show, always have been, always will be."

      Have not watched it apart form the first very poor episode. Bad was not the word.
      Not ever been a fan of Chris Evans, from the little I've seen of him.

      Perhaps, Jeremy and co should now just return to linear tv and let the Amazon deal go or finish what they have in the bag, it will not be out till the Autumn and still reluctant to do the painful Amazon prime thing just to watch that.
      Be a good opportunity for sky to step in with it on sky 1 or better placed on sky f1

      A step in the right direction.
      Now if they get rid of LeBlanc as well and do a proper reboot of the show it may stand a chance.

      Otherwise bite the bullet and can it now.

      Good, may start watching it now.
      I didn't think LeBlanc was too bad and he can drive.
